Republicans Senators Bore In

So, to no one’s surprise, the Senate Republicans are starting to turn the screws on state Inspector General Kristine Hamann at her hearing in Albany.

Hamann told the committee just now, “I did not believe that my writing a report on the man I report to directly in this atmosphere would have brought resolution to this issue.”

When pressed by Republican Senator George Winner, Hamann said she wouldn’t disclose the name of the person she spoke to in the governor’s office in connection to her inquiry.

Winner implied that Hamann had not questioned anyone in the governor’s office.

Hamann said the conversation was private and she didn’t want to repeat it, or characterize it publicly.
